Microscopy Gender Equality Resource

The RMS is dedicated to supporting equality in the field of microscopy, imaging and cytometry specifically for speakers invited to attend events internationally.

This resource was initially created in collaboration with Sian Culley at University College London, to highlight women in microscopy and cytometry around the world and demonstrate the specific areas they specialise in. It was designed to assist scientific and conference organisers in selecting excellent speakers for microscopy and cytometry events and maintaining a positive gender balance.

Now that this has been in place for a number of years, we have decided to open up the resource to include underrepresented people in microscopy and cytometry that deserve to be highlighted for their excellence.

If you have any questions or comments about the database or would like to update your details, please contact Lucy Ridler.

You can navigate around the map and zoom into the geographical area you are interested in, or alternatively open the map in a new browser and search for specific people or areas of expertise.
